I have a pair of these, and the only fabric they will cut is something crisp, or with a bit of substance.  Does any body else have a problem with their pinking shears?  Can anybody recommend a make which actually cuts, and not chew up the fabric?

I have Fiskars pinking shears and not had a problem cutting anything, even silk and chiffon.  Are yours worn more or maybe they need tightening?

I bought my Fiskars pinking shears in 1976 - and they still cut beautifully. :)

Mine too were bought many years ago and still cut like new  :)
